We know helmets are a hassle, so we've designed ours to make life easier and safer. Our unique helmet multi-piece design cascades, allowing the helmet to compact into a size and shape which easily slips into backpacks, satchels, or tote handbags. But what about the safety aspects?
Our foldable helmet, LID, is designed to remove some of the hassles of carrying a bike helmet, but what isn't removed is the safety integrity you’d expect from a traditional helmet. Our helmets have achieved safety certification for European (EN1078) and North American (CPSC) testing standards.
There is often a misconception that safety helmets must be a one-piece design in order to absorb an impact and protect the skull. This isn't the case. In fact, many motorcycle helmets are made from strips of EPS (the impact absorbing material which sits closest to the head) at the protective core, covered by a thin, one-piece outer shell.
Each helmet segment in LID's multi-piece design has its own, independent, ability to absorb impact, thereby protecting the rider's skull.
